Keeping Children Safe Online

Keeping under fives safe online (ChildNet)

Ofcom research in 2016 showed that almost 40% of 3-4 year olds and two thirds of 5-7 year olds go online. We know that children need support in these environments, to get the best out of using the internet, and there are real advantages in making sure that children are supported in their internet use right from the start.

ChildNet has prepared a pdf guide for the parents of under-7s to help them think about the issues involved. You can download it here: Keeping Under Fives Safe Online.
